Spencer Profile


Overview

Spencer is a tiny village located in the state of Nebraska. With a population of 433 people and just one neighborhood, Spencer is the 164th largest community in Nebraska. Much of the housing stock in Spencer was built prior to World War II, making it one of the older and more historic villages in the country.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some villages, Spencer isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Spencer are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Spencer is a village of professionals, sales and office workers, and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in Spencer who work in management occupations (13.73%), healthcare (12.25%), and teaching (10.29%).

Of important note, Spencer is also a village of artists. Spencer has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Spencer’s character.


Setting & Lifestyle

Because of many things, Spencer is a very good place for families to consider. With an enviable combination of good schools, low crime, college-educated neighbors who tend to support education because of their own experiences, and a high rate of home ownership in predominantly single-family properties, Spencer really has some of the features that families look for when choosing a good community to raise children. Is Spencer perfect? Of course not, and if you like frenetic nightlife, it will be far from your cup of tea. But overall this is a solid community, with many things to recommend it as a family-friendly place to live.

Residents will find that the village is relatively quiet. This is because it is not over-populated, and it has fewer college students, renters, and young children - all of whom can be noisy at times. So, if you're looking for a relatively peaceful place to live, Spencer is worth considering.

Compared to the rest of the country, citizens of Spencer spend much less time in their cars: on average, their commute to work is only 17.88 minutes. This also means that noise and pollution levels in the village are less than they would otherwise be.

As is often the case in a small village, Spencer doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
